Beirut, MINA – Delegations from the Hamas Islamic Resistance Movement, led by its representative in Lebanon, Ahmed Abdel Hadi, together with Lebanese Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Drian, on Monday (8/26), met to discuss “Israeli crimes against Jerusalem.”
In his statement in the Jerusalem Press, Hadi mentioned that there are still Israeli Zionist crimes repeatedly attacking Al-Aqsa Mosque.
“We continue to urge the government to increase its role to defend Palestine and protect Jerusalem from Judaization,” he said.
He added, “That concern includes the seriousness of the Lebanese Labor Ministry’s procedures towards Palestinian refugees, stressing their rejection of procedures and work permits, when they touch the political dimension rather than the refugee problem.”
He pressed for the freezing of procedures in preparation for amending the Labor Law in the Lebanese Parliament.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese Mufti, Sheikh Abdul Latif Darian, reiterated his support for the struggle of the Palestinian people, through the institution of Dar Al-Ifta.
He also stressed his support for the Palestinian people in their demands for human and social rights, especially in terms of the right to work, and that the law was amended for the lives of the Palestinians with dignity.
Darian pointed out that he followed this issue with great interest with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, so that all these efforts caused the Palestinian people to obtain their rights.
This was especially after the formation of a committee by the Lebanese government led by Hariri and membership of several ministers.
On Thursday (22/8), Lebanese Information Minister Jamal Jarrah announced the formation of a committee to study the Palestinian situation in all aspects, led by Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
Palestinian camps in Lebanon have been protesting for more than a month and a half against the Ministry of Manpower’s decision to impose work permits for Palestinian refugees.
Earlier in July, the Lebanese Ministry of Labor began implementing a plan that said it would regulate the situation of foreign workers, including Palestinians living in Lebanon.
According to the plan, employers are prohibited from employing Palestinian refugees without permission, as well as the closure of Palestinian institutions and facilities that do not have the necessary permits to work.
A total of 174,422 Palestinian refugees live in 12 camps and 156 communities in five Lebanese provinces, according to the latest census conducted by the Lebanese Central Statistics Bureau. (T/Ast/P2)
